A little dose of Byzantium.





A Byzantine fresco of Joshua, the Hosias Loukas Monastery, Greece. Dated to the late 12th-early 13th Century. 

If you want an idea of what a contemporary Byzantine army officer looked like, right down to the lamellar armor and sword, there you go.

As always, give it a click for more detail.

  1. Are you ... looking East for the Body of Christ? If you are considering converting to the Orthodox Church, could you please detail your journey for those of us who are considering the same?
